The Secret Garden Hostel is located in Old Kazimierz, ul. Skawińska 7.

Dear guests, due to the fact that from 23 March 2019 for a period of about 10 months Krakowska street will be closed, access to our facility will be difficult.

Access from the Main Railway Station in Krakow:
At the “Dworzec Główny Zachodnia” stop next to the Main Station, take tram 3 – towards “Nowy Bierzanów” – and get off at the fifth stop called “św. Wawrzyńca “, located at the intersection of Starowiślna and św. Wawrzyniec, which you should reach to Wolnica Square. Then cross street Krakowska (currently under renovation) and head for Skawińska Street, where at No. 7 there is the Hostel.

Access from the Krakow-Balice Airport:
From the “Kraków Airport” stop, take the 252 bus and get off at the “Centrum Kongresowe ICE” bus stop where you can walk along the above instructions. The second and definitely faster option is to use the train leaving the airport terminal, which ends its route at the Main Railway Station in Krakow, and from the Railway Station – as above…

Access by car:
It is possible to enter from ul. Dietla, ul. Augustinska which will be two-way during the renovation of Krakowska Street. Ul. Augustinska finally meets with Skawińska Street.
